Monday, the New York Times asked a state appellate court to stay the ruling of a Westchester judge who took the extraordinary step of barring the newspaper from publishing documents that shine light on activist-provocateur James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. The Times is on firm ground; the jud…

As another year comes to a close, I want to say thank you to everyone who keeps healthcare moving forward in Peru, Miami County and our surrounding communities.

A portion of the Local Journalism Sustainability Act (LJSA) was included in the recent Build Back Better bill that was passed in the House. The LJSA, which has bipartisan support in the House, provides needed support for local journalists across the U.S. and is now being considered in the Senate.

WASHINGTON -- President Joe Biden's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has been compared with the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam. But in the wake of Thursday's suicide bombing at the Kabul airport, what we are seeing in Afghanistan is far worse than a repeat of Saigon, 1975; it is now a re…

The number of major employers – not merely companies but also government entities – now requiring workers to be vaccinated is skyrocketing following the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine. This means the door is closing on holdouts who have ignored scie…

As we look forward to the unveiling of the Marie Stuart Edwards statue on the library grounds I believe it’s important to realize that we have now two citizens of Peru worthy of celebration.

As calls for the Food and Drug Administration to fully approve COVID-19 vaccines grow louder, the agency itself has little to say. This is a mistake. The agency insists it is “working as quickly as possible” and has suggested that full approval may come for at least one vaccine by the end of…

The blight of industrial-scale old-growth logging in Alaska is about to end. And it couldn’t have happened soon enough. And, in fact, it didn’t happen soon enough.

Harvesting Capabilities has been around for many many years and most people know us because of the thrift store which helps us raise money to continue to put in ramps and medical equipment for those who can't afford it in Miami County. Many people remember us from building the all-inclusive …

The car guy in the White House would probably rather drive a classic Pontiac along El Malecon, Havana’s beautiful boulevard beside the sea, than to recalibrate a Cuba policy in the midst of crisis. This week’s historic demonstrations, however, have forced his hand. The president has to act.

Whatever one may think of Donald Trump or the circumstances of last year’s election or even the bitterness of this nation’s partisan divide, it ought to be easy to condemn the events of Jan. 6 and to support a broad inquiry into what happened and how to prevent it from happening again. Sadly…

President Donald Trump was rightly castigated when he said that libel laws should be changed to make it harder to criticize public figures. Trump’s suggestion wasn’t just self-serving; it smacked of hypocrisy coming from a man who made wild accusations about his critics and political opponents.

The Indiana Supreme Court is helping launch a full fledged assault on government transparency, and we need to push back and speak up in order to keep our democracy from falling into darkness.

After losing the presidency and the Senate thanks to Donald Trump’s disastrous management of COVID, Republicans look determined to try to ascend again in Washington by parroting his stolen election lies. If you can’t snap out of a slumber, it seems, the second best thing is to dive back into…

It would be a hard slog for President Joe Biden to persuade Congress to abolish the federal death penalty as he promised, but the least he could do is to stop enforcing it. To the contrary, his Department of Justice is picking up where President Donald Trump’s left off in pushing for the exe…

It’s not just mania about college hoops that puts the “madness” in March Madness. Think about the money behind NCAA basketball. John Calipari, coach of perennial powerhouse University of Kentucky, makes $8 million a year. Duke’s famed Mike Krzyzewski makes $7 million. Closer to home, Univers…

Many of President Joe Biden’s critics, and a few of his friends, feared he would not be able to handle the presidential press conference.
